Friday

“Six days you shall labor,

but on the seventh day you shall rest;

even during the plowing season

and harvest you must rest.

  ~Exodus 34:21~

 

This morning at 7 A.M., my childhood neighbor, Mrs. Juanita Pritchett (89) will have surgery at Baton Rouge General to repair her aorta.  I would appreciate you praying for her even if you don’t personally know her.  If you personally know her, I know you will be praying.  Her husband, Johnny Pritchett, passed away about two weeks ago.

Please continue to pray for all the people in the path of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Jose.   Especially pray for those who just faced Irma and now have to deal with Jose.  Thank God for the many volunteers who will be working through Louisiana Disaster Relief and other organizations to help people after the storms.

Also pray for all the people who have forest fires in their areas of the western U.S.

Pray for the leaders, both politically and militarily, of countries around the world as they hopefully  work together to make our world a better place for all of us.

 

Read the Bible – Mark 7-8, Psalm 98, & video “The Messiah”

Operation Christmas Child – We’re collecting $1.00 flashlights (Walmart) with and extra set of three (3) AAA batteries at FBC tomorrow.  Think of the excitement when they are found in “shoeboxes”.  Next week, we will be collecting tiny trucks and tractors.

The La. Baptist Children’s Home will be at FBC, K first thing Monday morning to pick up the items for use in the homes there.  If you have not done so already, Sunday will be your last opportunity to drop off some items under the stairwell at the office entrance to the church.

Monday, we will have the associational WMU meeting at FBC, Amite at 10:00.  I’m excited to hear about the work done in Louisiana through the Georgia Barnett Offering for Louisiana.  Bro. Don Meadows of Taylor Creek Baptist Church will be our speaker.  We will end out meeting with a covered dish lunch.  Thanks to Linda Hendry and other ladies form FBC, Amite for hosting our meeting this month.  If you are not a member of an active WMU, please feel free to join us.  Bring some guests with you.

 

Use today to make needed preparations of any kind for the Lord’s Day tomorrow.
